British playwright David Hare is one of the hottest writers on Broadway this season. Last month's opening of "The Blue Room" made national news (with a power assist from a brief nude scene by Nicole Kidman). In early March, the playwright will star in his autobiographical one-man show, "Via Dolorosa," and after that comes "Amy's View," starring Judi Dench.
Actually, Hare's plays have become somewhat of an annual fixture on Broadway. His 1996 Broadway entry, "Skylight," makes its local debut tomorrow at Fell's Point Corner Theatre. Mark Campion plays a widower whose son (Morgan Stanton) tries to reunite him with the schoolteacher (Mary Anne Angelella) who was his former mistress. Direction is by Barry Feinstein.
Show times at Fell's Point Corner, 251 S. Ann St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Feb. 14. Tickets are $10 and $11. Call 410-276-7837.
